About the filmmaker:

Known internationally as a professional mountain biker, Darcy started working in television as a presenter for the globally syndicated travel/adventure show “Ride Guide” and has been featured in hundreds of publications worldwide, including Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal.

While completing an MA in Intercultural Communications at Royal Roads University, Darcy purchased a video camera and quickly found her passion for storytelling and visual arts.

Since then, Darcy has developed a personal style of filmmaking that combines art film with ethnography, metaphor, and critical

From commercial work, to music videos, to documentary, to travel pieces (in the past two years Darcy has shot in India, Bolivia, Indonesia, Rwanda, The Republic of Georgia, Turkey, and Qatar…to name a few), Darcy continues to build her portfolio and add to her diverse list of clients.

    It’s a role reversal. The guy is acting like a girl that is tagging along with her boyfriend. If this same video was posted and there was no role reversal, people would be whining about misogynism, but with the reversal you can make the same exact point and not get flamed.

    Though a bit stilted, this does drive home some of the frustration of trying to get the spouse out on the trail. While we don’t officially have cougars (though I have seen seen them twice) we do have bear issues. That requires my bringing bear spray on the trail when my spouse rides. It is worth the extra weight though if it gets both of us on the trail together.

    Itwould have been a lot stronger if it stuck to him having typical male behavior. When he said he felt bloated and crampy it fell apart and became a story about female partners being bad riding partners, acted out by a man. It’s a shame.
